With a diversified background in business and finance, I am passionate to explore new opportunities. I have master in finance and also an MBA from University of Alberta. I have worked in both supply chain management (as the head of procurement) in a manufacturing company and finance (as the investment analyst). I can effectively initiate and manage relationship with suppliers and customers and find solutions for problems. I possess financial and quantitative skills which help me to read, analyze and interpret financial statement easily and to apply them in investment and financial areas.

Currently I am taking my PhD in management (ABD) at University of Guelph. As a researcher, I am eager to discover new things and wish to become more intellectually engaged in governance and accountability. More specifically, I am interested in procurement in public sector and management control. 

I've been always passionate about teaching and interacting with students and that’s why teaching has been a major part of my professional life. I am focusing on being a dynamic and effective faculty member along with providing management consultation to firms and industries.
